Eno • Hyde – “The Satellites”
Art-rock eminence Brian Eno has linked up with Karl Hyde, frontman for the long-running British dance group Underworld, to record a collaborative album called Someday World. The duo, working under the name Eno • Hyde, has just shared the Someday World opener “The Satellites,” and it’s a sprawling, orchestral synthpop jam with more horns than you’d expect from these two. It’s calmer and less adventurous than what we might hope for from the two people most responsible for “I’ll Come Running” and “Born Slippy,” but then again, we’re all getting older. Eno’s long-ago Roxy Music bandmate Andy Mackay contributes, as does Eno’s daughter Darla. Listen to it below.
